Dragon Challenge is probably my favorite Orlando coaster. I'm a sucker for a good B&M invert. Back when it was Dueling Dragons, it was my first large coaster. I've only seen it duel twice. When it was Dueling Dragons, and one special ride in 2013. It was July 4th 2013, and I was down in Orlando. I was riding the Hungarian Horntail (ICE), and the Universal team members dispatched the two rides very close to each other. It was awesome. While the Chinese Fireball (FIRE) was a few seconds ahead, it was basically dueling. Now we have the metal detectors. They have there Pros and Cons. The cons are the metal detectors are starving the ride platform. There could be a large line for the metal detectors, but no line past that because they are very slow. The pros, those metal detectors make it IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to lose anything on the ride. Universal could advertise a "refurb" of the ride, take it down for a few days, get some more metal detectors, maybe instal some nets, and TA-DA! we get to duel again!
